Abstract
Optical parameters of clouds retrieved from numerous spectral radiation observation of different kinds revealed a dramatic conflict with results simulated with the scattering Mie theory. Namely, true absorption appears greater than it follows from Mie theory and the scattering coefficient together with the optical thickness exhibit clear spectral dependence. Obtained values of the optical parameters easily explain the "anomalous absorption" within clouds heatedly discussed last decade.
